I have a passion for working with people who are hurting. Christian counseling is such a powerful tool for healing and positive change, as individuals experience what it means to be heard and to have their emotions and experiences validated. Whether you’re struggling with a lack of purpose in your life, or you’re navigating your way through the pain of grief or a broken relationship, you don’t have to suffer alone. Help and hope are available. I look forward to meeting you and watching as God works in your life through the therapy process.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal as a Christian counselor is to build strong rapport, show Christlike love, and assist individuals in reaching their goals while living in congruence with their faith and values. I will meet you wherever you are in life, whether in the midst of darkness, light, or somewhere in between, and help you feel known and loved by Christ.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
During our first session, I will spend time getting to know your story, who you are, your faith and values, and what you want to work on. Together we will develop a realistic plan for you to experience the growth you desire. I like to create SMART goals – Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound – so we can track progress together over time.I will spend time explaining the counseling process to you and get to know what you expect from therapy, especially if you have never been before.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
There are so many passages in Scripture that tell us to lean not on our own understanding, but on Christ, which allows me to rely on Him and welcome Him into sessions, depending on the comfort level of my clients. I also believe prayer is such a powerful tool, and helps empower people to seek Jesus. I will never push prayer or Scripture on my clients, but will gladly incorporate both for those who comfortable doing so.
